SHE Group is committed to adhering to the highest standards of corporate governance as set out in the King III Report (a voluntary, internationally acknowledged code for best practice for all entities). This include the sound development, implementation and monitoring of all policies, transparency, financial performance and sustainability, ethics, compliance as well as the integrity of reporting on the company’s activities. SHE Group operates according to the principle that true value can only be created from a solid foundation of proper governance as this is the determining factor in achieving success. In this endeavour, SHE Group is guided by its strategic objectives.
SHE Group’s board of directors is committed to leading by example. Leadership based on integrity provides the company with a solid foundation for all activities. For SHE Group, values are more than a list of ideals to uphold, instead values are the benchmark against which every decision and activity are measured. Leading by example implies that values are lived by every member of SHE Group. In turn, this creates the type of disciplined environment that allows SHE Group the ability to turn promises into practice. SHE Group’s disciplinary code provides management and staff members with an effective set of guidelines that are achievable in real-life situations. This encompasses practical issues such as being punctual, dressed professionally, as well as making and implementing decisions that take into account the well-being of SHE Group and their clients.
SHE Group’s leadership team demands dedication from all staff members, not through enforcing rules but through setting the example. We have a stable, qualified and experienced management team that forms the backbone of the company.
Available 24 hours a day, management is committed to client satisfaction. With a competitive consultant-client ratio of 1:5 and consultant-site ratio of 1:15, the quality of SHE Group’s services is unsurpassed in the industry.
CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
SHE Group acknowledges that the companies does not operate in a vacuum but that its actions and decisions impact on its immediate communities, society in general and the environment. For SHE Group, corporate social responsibility is not merely an aspect of good governance, but a primary consideration in decision-making, from policy-development to each individual staff member’s actions on the ground
In addition, SHE Group is focused on being a valuable contributor in building a better future for all South Africans. Actions include, but are not limited to, investing in local labour where possible, job creation and the empowerment of staff members with skills additional to core vocational skills
The SHE Group has had to set an unbeatable example and, in some instances, break the mould of accepted practice in order to become the leader in our industry. Our clients are treated with the utmost respect and integrity in this regard. The SHE Group’s policies ensure that clients’ personal information will always be protected. Any references which may be required will only be used with the written permission of the client(s) concerned, and clients are kept up-to-date at all times. This means that we have a high level of trust and an impeccable reputation when it comes to our relationships with our clients.
At the SHE group, we are devoted to providing mutually beneficial development opportunities to permanent staff. Any of SHE’s permanent staff members with identified potential who are interested in improving their qualifications are invited to apply for company loans and bursaries. This is mutually beneficial to the company, because qualifying staff members are required to plough back what they’ve learned for a predetermined period of time as repayment of the bursaries.
